A SharePoint network consists of one or more farms. Each farm is a collection of one or more connected computers. Each farm runs at least one web application. By installing and configuring Metalogix Replicator for SharePoint, you create a Replication Network, which replicates SharePoint content between web applications in your SharePoint environment. You can use Replicator to replicate this content between farms or within the same farm. In order to replicate between farms, you must install Replicator on each farm. This guide will run through various installations, upgrade, and uninstall scenarios based on various farm configurations.
For a basic installation scenario, see the Replicator Quick Start Guide, and for further configuration and evaluation of Replicator see the Replicator Evaluation Guide. Both guides are available here:
